I'm losing loads of sleep due to the sound of loud snoring coming through the ceiling for most of the night Does anyone have any suggestions on how to block out the noise? I've already tried earplugs but they don't work.

If someones sleeping next to you then you simply pinch there nose and it stops lol
You could try listening to some slow songs on your ipod or something while trying to fall asleep.

When I stay at my dads he snores in the next room, and I find that putting my fan on blocks out the noise (and I'm very very sensitive to noise). I'm not sure of the exact name for them, but they're a couple of feet high and stand on the floor, maybe they're just called fans lol, anyway they work

Are you talking about white noise machines?

Can anyone reccommend some really good earplugs or headphones which work?

White noise machines are surprisingly expensive, I bought one of the cheaper ones (around £20) and it was a heap of crap and broke in a few weeks. If you own an iPod and dock then you can download your relaxing sound of choice and play it to help you sleep. I've got an hour long track of rainfall to help block out external noise, works perfectly, but it takes a little while to get used to sleeping with it on.

Maybe some of these products would be worth a try: http://www.purewhitenoise.com/s-28-snoring.aspx

If I lived with someone who snored I would definitely consider something like the distant thunderstorm or the sounds of water moving.

I've decided that tying to wake him up is a good idea, but despite however much noise I make, he doesn't wake up and just continues snoring even louder.:mad: Why is this? How can i wake him up when I'm in a separate room?
